Just some extra info :). There are two versions of gnuplot with 
different feature sets:

1. Carbon gnuplot [http://homepage.mac.com/gnuplot/index.html]:
--> plots can be accumulated into QuickTime movies [VERY nice]
--> can export to PICT [does anyone really use PICT anymore?]
--> uses old QuickDraw

2. commandline gnuplot w/ AquaTerm
--> from AquaTerm, plots can be directly saved as EPS/PDF
--> screen output looks a lot better than the Carbon one
--> uses Quartz

I have both versions of gnuplot's because of their respective features 
[I forgot about the Carbon gnuplot]. The commandline gnuplot is 
especially useful because of Octave... I looking into creating a 
QuickTime terminal for gnuplot [problem is QuickTime code is based on 
MacOS Carbon programming which is verrry ugly code compared to Cocoa].
